On a recent trip to Laytown, a large sandy beach north of Dublin, I stumbled upon a group of friendly, hardy and enthusiastic land yachters.

There were some very sleek and fast looking models.


And there were a number of ‘potties’ – mini land yachts.


Andy, over from Pembrokeshire for the weekend, is a maker and purveyor of these land lubbing crafts. I nearly drove away with one in the boot. I’m sure I’ll buy one yet….
